I enjoyed painting the ExTech, he carries an early flamer which looks similar to those carried in the Aliens movies so I imagine the miniature designer had Aliens in mind when he/she scuplted the miniature.
ExTech (Tech Adept)
The Hero reminds me of a John Carter of Mars, a Techno Barbarian who cares nothing for armour and relies on agility and dexterity to stay alive, he is wearing a loin cloth showing that he is either quite fashion conscious and accessorizing or that he is covering up his ballet tights.
Hero (Feral Hero)
I must point out both wear goggles which was a must for RT 1st Edition equipment, watch out for those blind grenades!
I have listened to several audio books this week while painting.
Isaac Asimov - The Foundation Trilogy by the BBC Radiophonic workshop with a very well known cast of UK actors playing the characters, I highly recommend this, it was about my 10th listen. You can see where many of the W40k concepts came from here.
Isaac Asimov - The Gods Themselves, this was a weird one not sure I will listen to it again.
Triplanetary by Doc E. E. Smith, I highly recommend this one two, a brilliant Sci-Fi story with plenty of history tied in.
My Realm of Chaos miniatures are coming on and i will have more Beastmen pictures to post hopefully tomorrow.
